MISSED INCOME ON HOLIDAY? 5 IDEAS TO NOT MISS OUT!
APPLE PODCASTS | ANCHOR | SPOTIFY
Want to learn how to give yourself paid vacation as a massage therapist?
This episode gives you 5 ideas that can help you feel less stress and less worry about missing out on income while you are on holiday and you might actually enjoy taking more time off!
SAVE 4% OF EACH PAYCHEQUE
It may not seem like much but, I have been doing this consistently for every pay I receive whether it is from a one hour home visit or a full 2 weeks at the clinic and it adds up!
I recommend that you open a separate account to transfer the 4%.
SAVE YOUR 5TH PAYCHEQUE
Some months give you an extra paycheque and saving this entire paycheque can help you create a comfortable vacation pay fund.
USE YOUR GRATUITIES
I understand that not every massage therapist accepts gratuities but, if you do this is a nice way to stash the cash for your next vacation. Whether you need to pay for flights or cover your expenses while you are away.
ADD MORE HOURS
Ok so on one episode I'm telling you to avoid burnout by pacing yourself and building a sustainable practice and now here I am telling you to increase the hours you are working? Yep.
We are in a very flexible career and if we need more money we can add more hours to earn it. I prefer to plan this out in advance and add a little bit to my schedule weeks ahead of my actual holiday. It is too stressful to cram it all in the week before and the week after. That is not going to give you good holiday vibes.
EARN EXTRA INCOME OUTSIDE OF MASSAGE
I recommend something that once set up helps you to earn income in a "passive" way. Please note- NOTHING is completely passive when it comes to earning income. What can you do to earn more income? Sell a course online, affiliate marketing, network selling, retail, etc.

I'm a girl who was told by my grandma that I have magic hands and so I became a massage therapist. I love reading in bed, the combo of peanut butter and chocolate anything, and working from my laptop or phone with my dogs by my side. My mission? To help other massage therapists own their awesome and do what they love every darn day! Even if that love is not massage therapy.
